Sagebrush rebellion goes down in flames

The U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico has ruled that an Otero County resolution permitting the removal of trees from the Lincoln National Forest is unconstitutional because it violates the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  The court’s order also invalidated the New Mexico state statute upon which the Otero County resolution relied because it too violated the Supremacy Clause.

We’ll hope the Forest Service helps spread the word to the rest of the states and counties that believe otherwise.

  1. So, let’s just remove those trees by burning them. That’ll work great.

    The pyros have got to realize that the social license for their pyromania is fading fast.
